Adaptive Phenotypic Plasticity:
Steve Bednarski asks:
Is there a difference in nutrient uptake and digestive efficiency between eating your food cold and hot? Seems like an awkward question, but here is the reason why I bring this up. I normally eat leftovers for lunch each day, let’s say today was chicken, broccoli, and avocado, all refrigerated after dinner last night. When I break for lunch, lately been questioning whether or not I should be microwaving my meals, so I have been eating it all cold. When eating protein especially, whether chicken, steak, pork…I feel as if I need to chew much longer to break down the meat fibers, and then it seems to sit longer in my stomach and keeps me feeling fuller longer. If it is true that cold food takes longer to break down, this would be a huge benefit to keeping the insulin response down for meals, and on the opposite side, ingesting post-workout nutrition heated may help nutrients hit your system faster for quicker recovery?
I guess I am not looking for an actual answer, but you guys seem to have the resources to look into this, and I thought it might be beneficial to the PA community. Also, if this is a little too geeked out, I understand.
A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
